After yet again a busy few months with work/life getting in the way, I can finally settle down in the house with not a care in the world and crack open a good bottle of cider to enjoy on a damp and drizzly Monday evening. One that’s been staring at me from the cider shelf, but as yet untouched, is the delightful looking Sampford Courtenay Traditional Devon Cider.

Hello everybody, I’m back on the cider reviewing game once again. Missed me? Or hadn’t even known I had gone? Either way, I’m looking to do a few more reviews in the coming weeks and resume service as normal. In what only felt like maybe a few weeks since my last cider review, it has actually been 4 months! Eek! Damn work has had to get in the way of a good time, hasn’t it! Anyway, my first review since turning 31 is going to be the Dabinett (Single Variety) cider from Apple County Cider Co.

Thankfully to end the frustrating day at work is a lovely new cider to try. This comes in the shape of the Lyonesse cider from Cornwall Cider Co.

It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a cider and there’s no better place to get back on the wagon than at a cider festival with around 120 ciders/perries available. With so much choice available I have resorted to trying something regional and something I have never had before. After a brief look through the expansive list, I finally decide upon the Hurst View Traditional Cider.

I’m kicking off my jolly boys outing to Weston-Super-Mare in traditional style; a large breakfast and a pint of cider! What makes this even better is the Wetherspoons have a cider festival on too. So no more Old Rosie today, but time to try something new! My first cider of the day is the Bottle Kicking Scrummage Cider. With a name like that, you just have to give it a go!
